About Us

 The Band


Honey Magpie is four-piece indie folk band from the Triangle. Honey Magpie’s sound is both traditional and modern, blending old-time string instruments and three part harmonies with pop, rock, and indie influences. Singer-songwriters Rachael Hurwitz (guitar, piano) and Pippa Hoover (cello) contribute to the group’s set of original songs. Their lyrics, often nature-inspired, are supported by catchy melodies, intricate string parts, and piano riffs. Kati Moore (violin) and Joe Ristaino (drums, mandolin) fill out Honey Magpie’s sound, adding melodic layers and rhythm.
